Question I can't hear you

During our PDI on our 2015 Mirada 35KB, our tech was showing us how everything worked until we got to the side/backup camera operation. He explained all the functions of the unit and how to set the volume for the microphone in the backup camera. Stepping out he moved to the back of the coach and started talking so I could set the volume. upon his return, he asked if I was happy with the volume. I told him " I saw your lips move, but didn't hear a word you said". His reply "Maybe your camera doesn't have a mic in it" and went on to the next item.

So my question is, If you have a BU camera system on your MH, does it have a microphone and does it work?

Thanks

Most do today some don't but if you have the capability to adjust the volume I would think yours should.

Hope you didn't sign off until you got a satisfactory answer. A "maybe" answer just doesn't cut it.

Had a similar experience with my walk thru. For my back up camera, there is no audio. I imagine it's hard to keep track of which units have and don't have it though at first the tech guy believed mine to have audio. Again, it does not.

What brand camera/monitor do you have? Mine is a Voyager and I have to turn the volume up nearly all the way to hear DW. I usually just go with hand signals.

audio is surely a plus when you can't keep your eye on the monitor screen.
